R ELIZABETH ROSE VARGHESE 12 B Give us today our daily bread and forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us… Amen” I bet animals are more civilized than us. At least they know how to treat others as brothers. And we, forgetting the fact, one family, one home, one world, trying our best to evacuate from the space of, love, loyalty, forgiveness, and respect. Fastening the seatbelts over the chest, with a colossal amount of pressure, racing ourselves, as fast as possible to the final destination, failing to realize the fact that, we all have the same final destination, ..........Death. In fact, we’ve learned how ruthless we can become, and we’ve reached a point where, humanity is beyond repair. It’s lost, between the layers of dusk and dawn, benevolence has been lost, humanity has been lost. Our own egotistical world, where there is no room for mankind, and there is only room for a cruel mind. Our actions may speak more than what we mean, breaking others into small pieces, global public school scattering them far apart making sure that they can never grow back again, permitting them to bleed from within. Just take a few seconds ….. sit back and analyze, did you hurt them? Oh, I am extremely sorry, the fault is on my side because being empathetic is not our game, and moreover, we have no time for it because we are busy running after time, running for money and reaching heights, that never will satisfy us. Are you a human? Do you belong to the most dangerous species on Earth? Do you belong to a category of people who don’t fear to kill lives even before they are born? Easy to preach, hard to act. Let’s not kill someone if they are hungry, let’s not fight for justice that isn’t real, let’s not be cynical for at least once. let’s not be separated by religion, let’s be united by humanity. The last thing that I can do for ourselves is to pray once more : “Give us today our daily bread and forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us… Amen” 29
